Belief: form, content, and function
Radu J. Bogdan
Clarendon Press, Oct 16, 1986 - Education - 184 pages
Presenting original essays on contemporary approaches to belief, including the problem of misrepresentation and false belief, conscious versus unconscious belief, explicit versus tacit belief, and the durable versus ephemeral question of the nature of belief, this interdisciplinary study takes advantage of new theories in what has become an important area of research. The contributors, Fred Dretske, Keith Lehrer, William Lycan, Stephen Schiffer, Stephen P. Stich, and the editor, Radu Bogdan, focus on the mental realization of belief, its cognitive and behavioral aspects, and the semantic aspects of its content.
